HANGZHOU - A man in east China's Zhejiang province was executed Tuesday afternoon for raping teenage girls, local authorities said.

Chen was sentenced to death for the offenses by the Intermediate People's Court of Lishui on September 22, 2009. He appealed to the Higher People's Court of Zhejiang, which decided to uphold the original verdict on December 22, 2010.
